1. Place the prawns in a bowl and season lightly with salt. Add the ginger, garlic, turmeric, 1 tsp chilli powder, black pepper, a few pinches of chopped fresh coriander and the dried mint and mix well. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, mix together the chick pea flour, water, saffron milk and lime juice into a smooth batter. Beat in the remaining coriander, remaining chilli powder and egg white and season with salt.

3. Heat the oil for deep-frying in a wok.

4. Once the oil is hot dip the prawns into the batter and add to the hot oil. Deep-fry the prawns, moving them around so they don't stick to the pan, until they brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper and serve at once.
